“We are on a mission: to transform the future of online grocery through cutting-edge technology innovation.”

What does the team do

We are Product Discovery and we build the online shopping experience for our retailer’s customers. Working with retail partners around the world, our engineering teams strive to create the next-generation shopping platform that will change the way the world shops. We obsess about performance, developer experience and automation. To do this we use cutting edge technology, and when that's not enough, we push the boundaries of what's possible.

What would I be doing?

As an Android Developer you will participate in the development of our customer-facing, native Android Shopping app, to be used by millions of people all over the world. Each team is cross-functional; comprising Android, iOS and backend-focused engineers, working together to deliver features to a high standard.

Mobile teams work closely with Web teams, Product Managers and UX to ensure feature parity and a consistently high-quality experience across all platforms. Teams leverage industry best-practices like continuous delivery and extensive automated testing, and are given the autonomy to try out new technologies and techniques that support our business and long-term goals.

What we are looking for 

  • You have strong programming and object-oriented design skills gained in Java or Kotlin through Android development.
  • You have knowledge of the Android environment by developing high-quality apps.
  • You are keen to automate repetitive tasks and are familiar with Continuous Integration tools.
  • You take pride in writing polished and fully-tested code and have experience of Unit and UI testing.

It would be a bonus if you have experience with any of the below, but do not feel hesitant to apply if you don’t.

  • Previous experience building production apps with Kotlin
